BF made me do it - 17 day meme

 1. If you could, which castle would you like to live in?


2. What is your favorite board game?
Unfortunately, since I live alone, I don’t have the chance to play many board games anymore. But, I love, love, love Trivial Pursuit. I have many trivial facts floating around in my head, and generally kick aft.   

3. Do you collect anything?
What is it they say, more than 3 of anything and you’re a collector? I’m in trouble – I think I collect everything! Especially dust bunnies. Let’s see, what are some of my collections…?
McCoy Pottery, animal skulls, Harley Davidson t-shirts, Transformer t-shirts, action figures (mostly Tformers, also female action figures, and anything that looks cool), unusual Tformer merchandising, older Predator and Tformer comics, Pepsi memorabilia, plastic deodorant balls, old wedding cake toppers, Hallmark ornaments, old beer cans (inherited from Rick-I think I’m going to sell them soon), Hummel figurines, Edgar Rice Burroughs paperbacks from the 1940’s, vampire books, Anita Blake series and Rachel Morgan series hardcover books, various antiques, ceramic pottery jugs, glass milk bottles from the Buffalo area, old bottles I dig up from the garbage dumps on the property, pretty rocks, shells and anything else that strikes my fancy. 

4. Five things you can touch right now without getting up.
Geez, I can touch about 40 things right where I’m sitting. Um, lets see, what’s the coolest stuff within reach?   Bluestreak my cat, x-rated paperback (‘The Voyeuse: A Candid Look at Female Peepers’), white Hot Wheels Turbo Porsche (#6 with the right colors - close but no cigar), Predator Tracker figure, and Tformer collector club Punch/Counterpunch figure in the box. 

5. You have to be somewhere on the fourth floor of a building. Do you take the lift/elevator?
Hell Yes! When I was younger I would have taken the stairs, but now my right knee would probably give out. It sucks to get old.    

6. How do you feel about your reflection?
I really don’t focus on my reflection unless I’m putting on makeup. And then I think I look pretty good. 

7. What are you thinking about right now?
Is that mac & cheese ready yet?  I'm hungry.

8. Write the first word that comes to mind.
That’s a trick question, because it makes you want to put down something cool, like xylophone, so people won’t think you’re boring. 

9. Dog person or cat person?
We have always had cats and dogs - I can’t imagine not having either one.    Dogs require more care and are good for protection. Cats are…cats. I love both, but I think I prefer cats. I’m lucky I can take Harley to my mom’s house when I need a doggy-sitter. Otherwise, I wouldn’t be able to go anywhere for very long. 

10. If you came across $2,000 (or other currency), would you keep it or turn it in?
I think it would depend upon the circumstances. A bag of money in the middle of the road is different from a wallet on the sidewalk. I’d probably keep something with no ID included. 
I did turn in a wallet I found once - it made me feel like I did a good thing. 

11. What was the last thing that you bought?
Mozzarella sticks from Applebee’s on Monday night. Four of us went out to celebrate the last day of tax season. Stacy owed me a round because I let her go home early last week, so I didn’t have to pay for my Jack & Coke.   Free drinks are the best drinks!

12. If you could afford to go anywhere in the world, where would you go?
Realistically, Hawaii or England. I went to Hawaii on my first honeymoon, and it was a beautiful place. I’d love to retire there. 
Unrealistically, Australia or Spain or Greece.

13. Where do you see yourself in five years?
Same job, same house, same boring life, only 5 years older.

14. Last book you've read?
Geez, make me get up off my fat aft and go into the bedroom to find it, why dontcha.
 Kim Harrison’s ‘Pale Demon’ – one of the book series I collect.

15. What are you doing this weekend?
Oh, I’ve got a lot of catching up to do. Pick up dog poop, type up POI list for biker group, try to start bike if not too cold out and change oil, start Whitey, spray weed killer on driveway if it’s not raining, burn papers, change cat boxes, go through 2 boxes of papers in garage and toss or save, put away H&R notes and papers, put away my copies of friends & family tax returns, clean bathroom so I can call the plumber next week, go out back onto the power line and see if it’s too late for pussy willows, color hair, go to Galleria Mall to look for dress for niece’s wedding, clean out crock pot that has stuff turning moldy inside because I was too lazy to clean it 2 weeks ago, color some Easter eggs, try to catch that new egg on Magistream, attend Easter Mass, maybe Easter dinner at Mom’s. If I get half done, I’ll be happy.

16. If you could play any musical instrument, which one would you play?
Bass Guitar. I think the low, thumping sound of heavy bass is sexy.  I used to play the triple drums in a drum corps, way back in high school. They were cool, and so was I (or so I thought).

17. What is your favorite cuisine?
I guess American. I like some Chinese, but haven’t tried anything else. I am a very picky eater. If something has more than 3 ingredients, I usually won’t even try it. I don’t like anything with tomato sauce (pizza, spag), or spicy stuff. I love fried foods. I have a very bland palate.

Yeah, IMO, the best castle in the best fantasy ever!

Aww, I'm glad you are entertained.

Dammit, I knew I was forgetting a meme. xD Busy, busy weekend for you! All I'm doing is working. -.-
Apr. 20th, 2011 11:04 pm (UTC)
Too many memes, too little time!

I knooooow. I think I've already done like 4 or 5 just this past week. XD

Holy heck with the collections and the to-do list!

My Transformers t-shirt collection is in peril. Half the shirts are 2x, and are too baggy to wear in public (IMO). I may try to make them into a quilt. It'll be a shitty quilt, but at least I will have the Decepticons to keep me warm!

Actually, I am a pack rat. Too. Much. Shit.

I made a pillow out of a kid's TF shirt - turned out pretty good. Do you have any to sell? That may be better than making a quilt. Any that I would like?

I was knocking around the pillow idea, but they take up too much space, and are almost useless to me. A quilt is useful and lasts a while. It makes good sense.

I'm too fond of my tees to part with them! You can find a lot of them on 80stees.com. :-) I seem to catch them in different places. Found one in Spencers, two in Hot Topic, one in JC Penney. Always got to keep an eye open!

Mmmm...mozzarella sticks...
